. if hillary clinton runs in 2016 and then 2020, the job is not open for you until 2024. it gets worse. if there's a president hillary clinton, that means 16 years of democrats in the white house, the longest run since fdr and truman. that means almost impossible democratic chance to win again in 2024 if anyone now in politics can wait that long. so the big question loomenting, what other career goal makes sense if there is no real shot at the presidency? or is there a lingering hope that secretary clinton won't make the run? or if she does, if she could be beaten. is that's what got governors cuomo and o'malley and patrick and vice president biden dreaming of sitting behind that presidential desk? the outside thought of what might be? joan loss and david corn join me. they're both msnbc political analysts. let's take a look at this story leading the stories today. dems 2016: will hillary clinton clear the field? we look at the waiting room. you know the people all have signs or have shown signs that point to them running if hillary clinton doesn't. joe biden, of course, new york gover

and major changes. president bush 41 raised taxes at a time when he needed to. president clinton did. deals between president clinton and speaker gingrich in the '95, '96, '97 time frame. we have come together a lot of times in our past we just can't seem to do it now. >> rose: what's changed. >> i think what has changed are these two things. one that it is tougher because resources are scarcer. and the numbers are so much bigger. and secondly, i do think we're living in a more polarized era. i there in one more thing. i think sadly we are living in a more selfish era. i think nobody really wants to pay the costs. for example, an average person at 65, about to enter medicare has paid $122,000 into the medicare system. >> rose: 122,000. >> thousand, they will get back inflation adjusted, they will get back $377,000 dollars over their ellerly years. you don't have to have study a lot of math to know those numbers don't work. and so all this debt we're piling up, these 800, 900 billion dollar deficits, all these promises, we're sticking on our children. and that to me is very depressing. >> ro

like newt gringrich helping president clinton out of the hole. they're playing offense poorly. i know what we'll do. we'll run the playbook that played out a couple of decades ago, well it's not going to work. >> john: there was obama sequester tag hashtag is he right? who is going to win the political fight on this? have the republicans succeeded in branding this as obama's failure? >> my sense is no. the republicans are going to get the blame for this. the question is what is the "this"? are people going to be able to make the connection between a slow diminishment of services. you know, we won't recognize the fact that the nih is going to cut out grants for new scientists for years theoretically. it may not be something that we're ever going to be aware of unless it's something that directly impacts you. i think it will be difficult. but over time this will impact the economy. the president at the very least is doing a good job pointing to the republicans and saying it's their fault. the real question is does the american public really absorb what it is that they're blaming the rep

also saw in 1995 with bill clinton and newt gingrich. and i think one dangerous thing about right now is that on both sides, people tend to be a little bit sanguine in remembering 1995. through a political lens, there may even be some democrats who say it turned out to be good for the democrats because clinton was able to position himself as a moderate, keeping the barbarians from the gate. and on the republican side they can say yes, we took some heat for being confrontational, but didn't we win both houses of congress in 1996? so i think that memory is a very dangerous thing. and it certainly isn't a break on this rush to the edge of destruction that we're seeing right now. >> because the fights are over fiscal issues and economic issues broadly speaking, i have to ask about how much of a threat to the country we are seeing and how much actual damage we are seeing inflicted. i mean republicans in particular have argued a lot about the idea of economic uncertainty. >> sure. >> that we should pursue governments in a way that we don't put too many question marks ahead of the american p

, honestly. if you recall at the golden globes, bill clinton was a presenter there. it almost felt like the oscars felt like they had a need to one-up the golden globes by having the actual president's wife rather than the former president presenting. and i kind of felt like it would have been more appropriate if she welcomed everyone at the beginning of the evening instead of being there at the height of -- you know, to take the football being passed off from jack nicholson. and he's pretty famous. he's a pretty good get as a presenter as it is. no, no, we're really going to amp it up for you this time. that's how it felt to me. >> i found it very disturbing. >> disturbing? >> the sense i got from it is young people are big president obama supporters. a lot of young people watch the oscars. there are a lot of social media about the oscars. that's to me what this was about. i couldn't think of any other reason why the first lady would do this. >> well, i don't know how young the viewers of the oscar telecast are. i think they were trying to go younger when they invited seth macfarlane t

30 years, the deficit scored as the top priority. early '90s under bush, the start of the clinton presidency, and late 2008 to the president day, they have coincided with economic downturns. and there is a classic moment, i don't think it has been made enough of. bush, perot, clinton, in a town hall debate, a woman said how has the deficit personally affected you? what she actually meant was how has the economy personally affected you? and reagan was the classic example of this, too, from his first term, the deficit started to skyrocket, coinciding with the unemployment. the unemployment crashed, in '83 and 4, even as the debt sky rocketed. mondale said i'll raise taxes to fight the deficit and lost 49 states. >> we usually do, this is a great point, deficits come up in periods of economic hardship. it is not a good time to come up. it hurts the economy to cut the deficit quickly while the economy it weak. so krystal this is the real danger of the sequester fight, this is not a cliff or a breach or a government shutdown. it will hurt, not that badly, but hurt the economy maybe in

clinton you heard senior members about of the obama administration articulate very clearly what the threat looks like today. >> what we're dealing with now is the jihadists who have been associated with al qaeda, who have gained unfortunately very serious combat experience coming back to the countries that they left in order to go wage jihad in central asia. so whether they call themselves al qaeda or boca, or ansar al-sharia, they are all part of the same global jihadist movement and there may be differences between them but their goals are unfortunately similar and pose threats to us and our partners. >> reporter: one of the main threads that connects the homegrown phenomenon in this country, these individuals who buy into radical islam is the american cleric anwar al-awlaki who was killed by the cia in drone strike in 2011, the first american targeted for death though he still inspires with his writings from the grave. the term often used by the president's counterterrorism advisor that al qaeda has become like a cancer. >> any element that is seated with al qaeda has as part of its age

into your entertainment space without being invited. clinton changed the math when he went on orsarsenio. there's a clear and wonderful blurring between entertainment and politics and information, but the viewer gets to choose when they want to blur. this would be akin to the president at the two-minute warning at the super bowl giving his speech verses earlier in the day when people can choose one way or another. i thought it was assumpative and very youwrong, to be honest wit you. >> back in 2008, everyone remembers when she said, i'll quote her, for the first time in my adult life, i'm proud of my country because i feel like hope is making a comeback. the campaign said she was taken out of context, but it did spark a lot of flack and backlash, and a lot of people still remember it, but she has made herself over, frankly, by becoming the opposite of all those things. she has become the ultimate soft female. >> we have watched two females completely make themselves over, not necessarily by becoming soft, her and hillary clinton. if you go back to 2008, both men and women were very polar

bill clinton was president. we not only balanced the budget, but we left george w. bush a surplus of $281 billion. and by the way, i happened to be here when we voted on the budget plan and we did not have one vote to spare. we did it ourselves. now, what did george w. bush do with this surplus, this huge surplus? he squandered it. he put two wars on the credit card, never paid for it, gave tax breaks to people who didn't need it and handed president obama a $1.2 trillion deficit, which is now projected to be $850 billion for 2013. it's going in the right direction under a democratic president. now, we want to get that down and we can get that down, and we can work together to get that down, but we do not have to do this sequester. history has shown us that the balanced approach we used when bill clinton was president of smart investments and things that help our people like job training and education and lifting up our children and making sure they don't go hungry, those kinds of investments pay off in a society. we had 23 million jobs. under george w. bush, we lost jobs. and thi
